On April 10th a group of Madison Seniors from the Madison Senior Center, the Strong House, and the Hearth visited the Deacon John Grave house.
In the main parlor they listened to a brief history of the house and the Grave family. Afterward a board member and expert on tools described and explained the antique tools which were displayed on three tables.The guests enjoyed guessing the uses of each tool.
Some of the seniors toured the second floor for a demonstration on flax and wool and spinning and weaving. They also discovered the Secret Room.
The group convened at the the hearth cooking area downstairs where the Board members were making a tradition chowder that they could taste.
